Half-Time Report: Igor Vetokele heads Charlton Athletic in front

Igor Vetokele's header gives struggling Charlton Athletic the lead going into the break of their Championship clash with Reading.

Igor Vetokele's header has given Charlton Athletic a 1-0 lead going into half time of their Championship match with Reading this afternoon.

The game's first half-chance fell to Glenn Murray, who looped a header over the bar after meeting a good ball into the box.

It was a quiet start to the contest, and Charlton would have been happy with the way they quietened the home fans.

Jordan Obita tried to find a way past the Addicks' resolute defence but his low drive was blocked in an exchange that typified the early stages of the match.

Johann Gudmundsson picked the ball out from 25 yards out and lashed a low shot at goal for Charlton's first shot of the match, which was saved by Adam Federici.

Vetokele eventually got the goal that the visitors deserved when he headed home from Chris Solly's delivery.

Reading should have equalised just before the break, with Simon Cox's initial shot deflecting wide just before Murray's header flew past the wrong side of the post from a corner.
